All That Glitters is… Brazilian Boobs?

We knew Adriana Lima‘s rack was worth a few thousands—any rumors of plastic surgery withstanding—but yesterday, the Brazilian supermodel’s assets skyrocketed in value when she debuted Victoria’s Secret’s new $2 million fantasy bra at a luncheon in New York City. (Presumably, only white meat was served, though we can’t confirm.) The 142-karat bra, made from diamonds, sapphires and topaz set in 18-karat white gold, wasn’t so much the center of attention as was Lima, whose graciousness and down-to-earth personality we already reported here. Besides gushing about her almost one-year-old daughter Valentine, Lima dished to New York Magazine about her strict workout routine leading up to the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which consists of a daily two, two-hour routine combined with a no-carb diet.

When we caught up with the Bombshell last month, she cited her favorite Brazilian steakhouse in the Midtown, Plataforma Churrascaria. Given Remezcla’s extensive coverage of Latin food, including tacos, arepas and other carb-laden creations, we can’t help but wonder the impossibility of her regime. Carbs over cleavage? I think we’ll choose the latter.  [via the Cut]
